DSM Integrated Annual Report 2022

30 Events after the balance sheet date

On 23 January 2023, the DSM shareholders voted in favor of all resolutions related to the merger with Firmenich at the Extraordinary General Meeting. As a result, the acceptance threshold was automatically adjusted from 95% to 80% of DSM’s aggregate issued and outstanding ordinary share capital. Furthermore, the acceptance period, which period was set to expire on 31 January 2023, was extended until two weeks after the announcement that the Indian competition clearance has been obtained, but not before 17:40 hours CET on 7 March and no later than 17:40 hours CET on 11 April 2023.
